Annual Festa Picnic - August 

Socials
Several times a year Society members will get together outside of our meetings to enjoy each other's company, converse and relax.

Italian Heritage Day - October 
Each year,  the members of the Italian-American Society gather together to celebrate our heritage as Italians. A member of the Society or Peoria community will often speak about the history of Italians globally or in the United States. 

Annual Christmas/Holiday Dinner - December 
Each December at our monthly meeting members of the Society take time to reflect on the past year and celebrate family and friendship at our annual Christmas/Holiday Dinner. In addition to the buffet meal, members are encouraged to prepare and bring Italian desserts. At this event, the Society members collect items for a charity in the area. There may also be special appearances by Santa and La Befana
